Liquid rennet is used in cheesemaking as a coagulation aid that separates whey from the milk curds. It is a vital part of the cheesemaking process, used in cheeses from parmesan to Manchego. Chy-Max M rennet comes in liquid form, and is suitable for home cheesemaking. This rennet is double strength, so be aware of its high concentration when using it in recipes. A good rule of thumb is using half the amount your recipe calls for, to account for its strength. The product is non-GMO, and all natural.
Chymax rennet is Kosher, halal and vegetarian, making it suitable for all kinds of dietary restrictions. It is packaged using food-grade sanitizers, ensuring that other rennet does not come into contact with this rennet or any of its containers. Vegetarian rennets like this one are vegetable-based. The coagulating properties of rennet are often used in making fresh kefir grains, along with starter culture that can be found in our cheesemaking kits. The rennet comes in four sizes: 1 ounce, 4 ounces, 1 pint, 1 quart. The range of sizes makes it easy to find one that is appropriate for your needs and the amount of cheese you plan to make.
Chy max liquid rennet can be used in all kinds of cheeses, including brie. The formation of curds gives the first glimpse of what will eventually become cheese. For a smooth introduction to making brie, try a brie cheesemaking kit that contains instructions along with all the ingredients and molds needed for the process. The Cheesemaker has all the ingredients, equipment and accessories for expert and amateurs alike to make delicious batches of cheese in all varieties.

I have used this rennet for a couple of years, find that it stores well in the fridge, and contributes towards making a good cheese.
Love the Liquid Rennet!

I only use liquid rennet for my chevre, because it only takes 2 drops. The little bottle last me for two years. I actually prefer animal rennet for hard cheeses, but this is very handy and easy to use for such a small amount.
